Thread Name: Obit: Aretha Franklin (1942-2018)
Subject: RE: Obit: Aretha Franklin (1942-2018)
Aretha Franklin has been an integral part of the soundscape of almost my whole life. I remember the joy of seeing her performing in The Blues Brothers movie, and especially seeing footage of her singing at Barrack Obama's inauguration.

I think I am in the same state as Greg F above. Words fail me.

An icon has been taken away from us, but she is jamming in heaven with all who went before her, and I hope she finds peace and solace.
